Owning a Tourism Business is awesome

Google Earth publicity

Google Earth combines the power of Google Search with satellite imagery, maps, terrain and 3D buildings to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips.
  • Fly to your house. Just type in an address, press Search, and you’ll zoom right in.
  • Search for schools, parks, restaurants, and hotels. Get driving directions.
  • Tilt and rotate the view to see 3D terrain and buildings.
  • Save and share your searches and favorites.
More than this for tourism operators, it allows us to pinpoint our resorts and activity areas anywhere in the world. Prospective guests can now 'fly' in a virtual world to see where you are.

Combining it with other online programs you can even post photographs of your resort and area to appear.

Give it a go, download Google Earth here... And play to see how powerful this is can be for showing customers what you offer 'live' online.

More later about kmz files that can provide a full fetaured download on your website to fly around your islands and properties. They auto run into Google Earth, and are easy to setup once you get the hang of the online program.

Stay tuned for that tutorial with an example I did for a past client.
